The Class of 1955 Student Off-Campus Study Fund was established by the class of 1955 in honor of their 50th reunion. The class of 1955 acknowledges that off-campus study opportunities are increasingly sought after by students today, providing them with a broader view of the world and unique, hands-on experiences that they need to distinguish themselves to future employers and to succeed.
The Class of 1955 Student Off-Campus Study Fund provides support for Cornell students who are studying off-campus. Students participating in off-campus internships sponsored by the Berry Center, Dimensions or the Cornell Fellows program are not eligible to apply. Students who have already received a Class of '55 award will not be eligible to re-apply.
Sample Class of '55 award thank you letters from successful applicants can be found online.
